massachusetts and mayor villaraigosa, the mayor of los angeles. gentlemen, watch this. conservative groups are trying to drive home the point that president obama's out of touch in this issue. take a look at this new ad produced by gary bower, just caught it this morning. let's watch this ad they're running here. >> hey, honey. how are you? >> fine. i guess. >> what's going on? >> well, obama is trying to force gay marriage on this country. that's not the change i voted for. marriage is between a man and a woman. >> that's not the change i voted for either. >> what can we do? >> we can vote for someone with values. >> well, you know, i don't think that's a very realistic discussion. i've always wondered what it does to their relationship. nothing probably. here's the line they're putting out. obama is trying to force gay marriage on this country. you know the language that's coming out and the platform of the democratic party. does it meet this. is it forcing gay marriage on the country? >> not forcing gay marriage on the country. what he's speaking to is the notion that marriage ought to

up the country to give me the country to be mayor of los angeles and chairman of the democratic national committee. >> in fact, that constitutional amendment, george bush had put it forward. paul ryan has voted for it. it also no longer says no further same-sex marriage. it cancels my marriage. i've been married in massachusetts. after the legitimateture of massachusetts allowed it to stay in effect. mitt romney tried to undo it, the legislature wouldn't allow it. this amendment would take the marriages in seven states, marriages that have gone on for five years and revoke them. here's the problem. all the predictions they made about the terrible things that were going to happen from same-sex marriage haven't happened. they have to make things up. there was same-sex marriage in massachusetts and other states for eight years. tens of millions of americans now live in state where is you can have it. and nothing bad has happened. that's why they have to resort to silliness. and by the way as you said, they're the ones not only in the minority but a growing minority. you talk to peo

has taken may make it look weak down the road. >> surely it's coming out of the los angeles or the reverend terry jones to denounce out of l.a. and say that romney hasn't done so. let's watch the secretary. >> let me state very clearly and i hope it is obvious that the united states government had absolutely nothing to do with this video. we absolutely reject its content and its message. >> why doesn't romney say that? would that offend one of his people? these people that keep staring up wars by burning koran, flushing down the toilet, paying on them, whatever they are doing lately, is doing nothing but killing american soldiers. david? >> chris, romney has painted himself into a corner as the no apology guy, mr. never back down. there are a lot of people on the republican right who are bought into this idea that there's a clash of civilizations going on. you see this every day on the internet and i guess romney in ap a kind of political opportunist way does not want to offend people that are going to be supporters of his. he's got to break out of that. he just -- every tim

, yes, but toward what? some trouble makers in los angeles put out a preview of an anti-islamic movie. it goes viral. gets translated into arabic, hits the high re cairo streets and embassy. does romney decry the anti-islamic movie? no, he had nothing to say about that. nothing at all. all he did was put out a statement attacking a statement, some official in the cairo embassy put out decrying the anti-islamic movie. mr. romney had nothing to say about the movie that stirred things up. let's agree on this. except the snippets he issued attacking his rival he doesn't have much to say at all about anything. that's the huge emt iness people are starting to notice in this person, except for his faith, family and business, he doesn't have a whole lot on his mind, in his mind. he's been in public life a long time, perhaps a generation now. if he thought anything was curious about anything, had discovered anything in life, he's yet to let it out. and, yes, this is why his tent is starting to flop. the great writer william man chester described in 1948 presidential campaign of new york govern

"hardball." ♪ >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews out in los angeles. doing the bill more show tonight. let's start with the difficulties mitt romney has been having in the campaign. romney is reaping what he sowed. who was it that aplowed that multistate effort to suppress the black vote which bget calls the most blatant he's ever seen. if he and his agent wasn't behind it, he should say so. who was it thata straighted this racially attack on people on welfare? wasn't that mitt's voice we heard saying i am mitt romney and i approve this message? who was it who has been out there backing 100% the obstructionist republican congress and its number one priority, to terminate the obama presidency through the filibuster. if romney's got it hard, perhaps it was he from the start using the dirty tools of the old days that's responsible. voter suppression, coated racial appeals, the filibuster. if he's having a tough month, maybe he's earned a few more. howard fineman and joy ann reid are here. first, new polls in the presidential race. let's check the "hardball" scoreboard. according to a national

with the crowds in libya and egypt protesting an anti-muslim film, apparently made in los angeles. "time" magazine's mark hallperin and howard fineman. take a look at the timeline of events over a very significant 24-hour period. it started yesterday morning about 6 a.m. eastern time. noon in cairo. that's when the american embassy put out a statement saying it condemns the continuing effort by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of muslim, in reference in part to the movie. throughout the day in cairo protesters marched on the embassy protesting the film. at noon the embassy wall was breached and the american flag was ripped down around 10:00 at night. secretary clinton released a statement condemning the violence. at 10:09 the romney camp sent a statement to the press saying it's disgraceful the obama's administration first response was not to condemn attacks on our diplomatic missions but sympathize with those who waged the attacks. around that time the white house disavowed the embassy statement from earlier that day. a few hours later tweeted, obama sympathizes with attackers
